The only thing I didn’t like was, I was not told before hand that it would be a $200 hold on my card. Other than that the experience was great.

My experience was terrible and the staff at this Hertz location all provided horrible customer service. I was left stranded at Hertz unable to receive a rental car that I PRE-PAID for. I was told that I cannot get a refund and I could not receive a rental car which left me stranded for hours. I was not offered alternative solutions or help to resolve my situation. As I was stranded, I watched and viewed staff members being unprofessional and rude to other customers as well. The crew at this Hobby Airport location are one of the worst teams I’ve ever experienced and I will warn others of the treatment that you receive here.
